I just received my iPad mini and wanted to get a folio-style case for overall protection and multiple viewing/typing angles. after going through all the current options, i decided to go with Belkin: http://www.belkin.com/us/F7N034-Belkin/p/P-F7N034?q=::devicePath:/Device/IPAD/APPLOTHAIPADMINI Amazon has a great chart on the differences between the various Belkin iPad mini folio covers. Based on that, I decided to go with the "Dot Cover with Stand" for $39.99 + tax: I wanted the case quickly and saw it on the Best Buy website, so I decided to head down to my local store and pick one up. The outside of the case is a soft material and the inside feels like suede fabric. There is a metallic latch that holds the cover shut or open. *NOTE* The sleep/wake function does not get activated when opening/closing this case The iPad mini is held into the cover by four protective corners. They are soft, so I don't expect them to scratch the iPad when installing/removing it: With the case installed, the overall package looks like a small book: What I like the most about this case is the many different viewing/typing orientations you can put it in: **Overall, I highly recommend this case for those looking for a folio-style case for their new iPad minis. $39.99 is on the pricier side, but the case is extremely high quality and functions well. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
